"...Heilbrun builds an eloquent argument demonstrating that writers conform all too often to society's expectations of what women should be like at the expense of the truth of the female experience. Drawing on the careers of celebrated authors including Virginia Woolf, George Sand and Dorothy Sayers, she illustrates the struggle these writers undertook in both work and life to break away from traditional 'male' scripts for women's roles"--Back cover.
